So I take it that the exclusive deal that Setanta had with Sports Network fighters (Khan aside) is now terminated?

The 20 fight deal is ****** and Sky - not Khan and Sky.

The gravy train will come to an abrupt end soon, make no mistake about it.

I feel the BBBoC ought to be refusing to sanction the following:

Commonwealth title matches
Interalphabetty matches
WBO/WBU etc matches

I think everyone is aware of my feelings on the Commonwealth and Interalphabetty titles, basically an excuse to line up a succession of bums and make the uninitiated think that something special is going on, when quite honestly, it ain't.

WBO and WBU titles are the bain of pretty much every boxing fans existence - again, allowing guys to build up padded records against bums and claim that they are a world champion

The hard work done by Sky to re-establish the British and European titles working with Maloney, Hearn, Hennessy et al has just been totally blown away in one fell swoop.

Hopefully Setanta will pick up the baton and really piss on Sky's coverage, which, to be honest, has been piss poor of late.

I hear Bobby Gunn fancies dropping back down to welterweight and is willing to meet Amir for the interalphabetty strap

How they can have meaningless fights on PPV is totally beyond me. You have Amir fighting a guy who is all smoke and mirrors (yet again) and what basically amounts to a European title fight between Cook and Arthur - with a load of young SN prospects fighting the usual merry go round of bums.

Sky ought to be ashamed.

No chance ill be paying for this PPV.

Established stars in Lewis, Tyson, Naz and recent Hatton fights made it on sky PPV. Now they add a prospect with no title to that list? Hope it bombs.

I really can't see card getting many buys, Khan just isn't popular enough yet.

I'm glad ****** has signed with Sky and is making this PPV, this should do such bad number that Sky wont work with him again... but he's a smart guy and knows that the general public are stupid enough to buy it if he can hype it properly. I certainly wont be buying this though.

***** + *******

What would be brilliant is if one of the Brits won a gold at the Olympics and Khan became yesterday's news just before his switch to ppv.
